"They go 1-0 up but they seem to be on the back foot after the goal, but we certainly started really, really well.

"The first 15 to 20 minutes is the closest to how I see us playing in terms of our intensity, how quickly we move the ball and the chances, good chances, we create.

"I know we're playing away from home but that's how I see us playing, so that was pleasing.

"They had a little spell but I thought we got to grips with that and saw it out before half-time.

"In the second-half, we created problems for ourselves and that led to the goal.

"They put their four up against your four, but we felt it we had quick ball speed we could cause them some problems and that's exactly what we did.

"The lads took on the information well and I thought we caused them a lot of problems."
